Delectably Darling and Delish Lush Lavender Lemon Cake

Not only do I adore Lavender and Lemons on there own, and let's face it who doesn't adore cake , but put the three together to create a Magickal taste sensation.

The cake can be perfectly cut into tiny cutsie little tea party squares to.

Short and sweet post of just my cake , my recipe , my creation , my amazing taste sensation.


Combine in a  small bowl and set aside:
1 1/2 ( maybe just slightly more than ) C of Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
Blend Together in large bowl :
1/2 C + 1 TSP of Butter ( or margarine if that is all you have)
1 1/2 C of Sugar
then add 3 Eggs blend in ( get rid of the white cordy things ( they just gross me out ) )
add 2 TBSP of Lemon juice ( I use fresh squeezed but bottled is just fine)
( you can add some zest in as well for next level flavour)
Add 1/2 C of water
Once all combined stir in flour mixture.
Pour into your pan.

Grease your pan would make 2 8 inch cakes, or can make cupcakes instead.
Depending on your oven and what you use to bake with , bake at 350 for approx 35-45 minutes . Just depends on what you bake in .
I do not preheat while preparing I preheat my oven as soon as I fill my cake pan . This allows the cake to rest as it should before cooking and you do not waste energy.
Once cooked let rest 10 minutes then turn onto a plate or rack to cool. ( You still want a bit of warmth  when you glaze )

Blend together 2 Cups of sugar and 1 TBSP of lavender buds and 1/2 TBSP of zested rind ( if you have) , pulse in a blender till smooth . Once cake is cooled till just lukewarm, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to your icing sugar and pour over the entire cake. Allow to cool completely before serving as the glaze candies the top and hardens to perfection .

 Finished unglazed cake to showcase the lavender buds throughout.
 My homemade lavender infused icing sugar for the glaze.

 It is just so beautiful with the glaze and topped with a fresh sprig of lavender.
